: Power Automate flow that sends mail AFTER power bi refreshes

Got a simple flow set up:


1. Data appears in sharepoint folder

2. Power BI refresh iniated

3. Delay 15 minutes (this is to give PBI time to refresh)

4. Send mail to users


Today I received some complaints because the mail went out while the data hadn't been refreshed yet (i.e. people received the mail to soon)


Is there a way to replace step 3 by a step that checks for "received confirmation refresh ended successfully"?

Absolutely.  In Power Automate periodically poll the Power BI API to inquire about the dataset refresh status.  

(or the premium equivalent)


The refresh is complete when the first returned entry has an endTime value and a status other than "unknown"
